Hey guys so ive recently bought a 2012 veloster and was looking to get a bad boy exhaust on it. Was just wondering if the 2012 veloster exhaust and the 2013 exhaust fit the same, as i see alot more options for exhausts saying they are compatible for 2013- onwards models. Where i only see a few exhausts saying they fit the 2012 models.

Welcome to forum.

VT did not emerge in the US until mid to late 2012 as the 2013 model year so any US manufacturer will not list 2012. Up to the 15 MY has the same turbo back exhaust. 16+ is different.

Thanks mate.
So basically when looking for an exhaust, i can search from the periods of 2013-2016 and it will fit my 2012 model.

13-15 from a US manufacturer for sure.

Ok please don't piss in my Cheerios this morning! I'm waiting for my OBX catback to arrive which claims to fit 12-17 models. MBRP lists 12-16 on theirs, even Megan's version for the n/a lists 12-16 I have a 16 VT, built in 15. Can someone please clarify this? What will it take to make it fit on later models? Is there a gap or just flange modification? And what about the poor saps who own 17-19?
Also, once I get the OBX DP will this be a moot point?
Thanks

Flange modification. Have a shop put it on and make the necessary changes to fit.

Update: the OBX exhaust fits 2016 perfectly. Quite beautiful and sounds divine. After doing some research it seems 2011-2015 exhausts do fit 2016/17 . Even though the DP is different the flange is the same. In fact it's even better now there's only one cat to gut now if needed.
Although removal of the stocker was a PITA (car has 96k on it) I had to use air tools for the nuts and cut the pipe with an angle grinder but only took me about 20mins to install by myself. I also used a torque solutions 12mm hanger at the tips (OBX uses stock tips) for rigidity.
I got mine from mega tuning for $440 shipped. Not too shabby.

Muffler looks crooked and pipe looks like it's touching the heat shield from the angle it's def not and has plenty of clearance all around. I sprayed it with VHT satin clear for protection but it comes highly polished even though you normally see none of it lol.
